Original Song – “Eyes Of A Child”

Eyes Of A Child is a Christmas song of mine that describes the simple joys of Christmas through the eyes of a child.  Every parent sees and experiences the anticipation building in their children during the Christmas season, culminating in their pure joy and delight on Christmas morning!  The song then transitions to recall the memories of Christmases past when we, too, were small children.  So take a moment and step into the wonder and cherished memories of Christmas through the eyes of a child – Merry Christmas to one and all!

~~~~~~~~~~

I recorded my original song “Eyes Of A Child” on Set 13 in 1997, and it’s a Christmas song that speaks to the joy and delight of children at Christmastime. It also recalls the memories of Christmases past, when we, too, were children ~ enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
